We actively work with local reproductive endocrinologists and other medical fertility experts throughout the country. We develop a personalized treatment plan that will work concurrently with your fertility doctor’s biomedical procedures. Combining the best of both Eastern and Western medicine is often chosen by patients who seek a significant statistical improvement in their chances for pregnancy success.

At Reproductive Wellness we combine acupuncture, uterine massage, Chinese herbal medicine, functional medicine, fertility yoga, nutritional supplementation and dietary recommendations to create the perfect plan for each individual.


Our acupuncturists are Certified Fellows of the American Board of Oriental Reproductive Medicine (ABORM), the only ones in San Diego.
